ProSight Duo Multi-Factor Authentication
Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of services incorporates advanced technology from Duo, a Cisco subsidiary, to deliver two-factor authentication services. Two-factor authentication is one of the foundations of modern zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA uses out-of-band identity confirmation to build an additional layer of protection on top of just passwords. 2FA blocks the most common sources of security breaches including phishing, social engineering, and credential theft.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push app streamlines authentication
Duo's push technology minimizes time and hassle by allowing users to verify their identity just by tapping "Approve" on the authentication box on their own iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This one-tap process eliminates the need to retrieve an email or text message and transcribe a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo family includes three subscription services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA allows organizations to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) service to protect all applications while providing basic policy controls, centralized management, and rapid provisioning. ProSight Duo Access supports all the capabilities of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive ID validation policies and endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to identify corporate as distinct from personal endpoints, deny access to suspect devices, and give users safe and transparent access to your internal applications. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your business to plan, deploy and maintain an advanced ID validation system that provides top-level security without disrupting your users.
The overwhelming majority of cybersecurity breaches exploit compromised passwords. Every managed service plan in Progent's ProSight Duo suite of access security solutions can eliminate your sole reliance on password protection by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a secured online application and enter your password you are requested to verify who you are via a device that you have exclusive ownership of and that uses a separate ("out-of-band") channel. A broad selection of devices can be utilized as your additional form of ID validation including an iOS or Android smartphone or wearable, a token, a landline telephone, etc. You can enroll multiple verification devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication provides an additional level of security
Once you confirm your identity using your out-of-band device, you are permitted to use your app or access your VPN or remote desktop connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature enabled, you can simply press "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or smart watch. This streamlines the sign-on experience by making the verification process nearly immediate. For other authentication units, such as a hardware token, you can transcribe a short-term password.
